[ light laughter ] [ applause ] you don't have to clap. you don't have to clap. i knew it wasn't going to work, i still did it. that's how much i like that
joke. one for you. one for me. [ laughter ] and english couple, this is a very sweet story, an english couple has become the world's oldest newlyweds at the ages of 91 and 103. [ audience ohs ] the couple registered at bed, bath & the great beyond. [ laughter and applause ] that's right. an english couple has become the couple's oldest newlyweds, at get this at the ages of 91 and 103. so you have a year to get them a gift, but i wouldn't wait that long. [ laughter ] rush. rush to the mall. we mentioned earlier, former spokane naacp president rachel dolezal said today that she doesn't think of herself as a con artist. of course, she also doesn't think of herself as a white lady, but she is.
[ laughter and applause ] so we take what you think. this is amazing. a new report says that the earthquake that hit nepal in april moved mt. evrest over an inch to the southwest. over one inch to the southwest. said one geologist, "oh, there it is." [ laughter ] i was looking there. it was there. ah, oh, oh. a pittsburgh man, this is true, a pittsburgh man managed to rob a bank yesterday using a vibrator. [ laughter ] and i guess all he had to say was "my grandma used this," and they just handed him the money. [ applause ] [ laughter ]
not sure if you guys heard this. an english couple has become the world's oldest newlyweds. by getting married at the ages of 91 and 103. and this is great. the wedding was open casket. [ audience ohs ] oh. [ applause ] thank you. is that a rim shot or you fell over? you fell over on your drum. the crazy thing is, my head writer alex baze said that last open casket joke wasn't going to work. >> yeah. >> seth: yeah. how -- how right you were. [ laughter ] he's going to lord this over me. and finally, this is incredible, iran has launched a website designed to encourage young single people to get married. it's like j-date but without the js. [ laughter ] because it's iran. ladies and gentlemen, this is the 8g band!
♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: how we doing, 8g band? i think the j-date joke -- i think it would have gone better except they were still thinking about open casket. i think that's what happened. and now because we're talking about open casket you can't cut it. [ laughter ] tricked you. [ laughter ] see how i just did that? see what i did? that's right. like ahh. you guys sitting in on drums all week from the red hot chili peppers chad smith is joining us. [ cheers and applause ] so honored, so excited to have you here. >> thank you. >> seth: chad is also an ambassador for the upcoming make music day which takes place this sunday on june 21st. check out makemusicday.org for more information. and thank you so much for being
here, chad. >> my pleasure. >> seth: so happy you're going to be here today as well as the rest of the week. you know, when you do comedy for a living there are some days where you just don't know what to talk about. you read through the news and it's just so dry and boring you can't even begin to see where the jokes might be. and then on other days -- >> i am officially running for president of the united states. >> seth: that's right, everybody! that's right. [ cheers and applause ] donald trump announced today that he will be throwing his hat into the ring for the presidential nomination. trump's daughter ivanka introduced him and with anticipation high he made sure not to keep the crowd waiting. >> hold on, everybody. here we go. we've got to listen to this with bated breath. here he comes, everyone. donald trump. >> don't you like the music? ♪
♪ >> seth: where was he? [ laughter ] did he get lost in one of his own buildings? while they were waiting for donald, fox news filled the air in the most professional way they know how, by making sexist comments. >> you think the women at fox take a long time in the dressing room. [ audience ohs ] >> seth: you know what, no. not today. donald trump is running for president. i'm not going to let you ruin my day. this whole ordeal is like watching fox news cover a rain delay in baseball. >> so that's like neil young. >> they are playing neil young. yes. >> what's name of the song? >> "rocking in the free world." >> keep on rocking in the free world. okay. and the crowd is looking to the left of the screen. >> here's something. top row. >> on the top row. >> oh, there he is. from on high. the donald appears. thumb's up. comes down the escalator. >> seth: finally.
finally trump was there with his wife and fox covered the escalator ride with yet another classy comment. >> this will definitely be the best looking first lady. >> seth: no. i'm pushing through. also riding down an escalator is not the most presidential way to make an entrance. are you going to make a speech, or are you going to baggage claim? [ laughter ] all right. one more sexist comment and let's get this thing on the road. >> what's his wife's name again? >> um -- >> seth: uhh -- hotty von hottington. finally trump made it to stage and in a speech cobbled together from your forwarded e-mails from your uncle he let us know what he thought america needed. >> our country needs a truly great leader. and we also need a cheerleader. >> seth: and then, donald trump got straight to the cheerleading. >> our country is in serious trouble. we as a country are getting weaker. we are like a third world
country. the u.s. has become a dumping ground for everybody else's problems. >> seth: a dumping ground for everybody else's problems? then what's "celebrity apprentice?" [ laughter and applause ] oh, right. no, i remember now. i remember now. "celebrity apprentice " is a contest with 16 participants who will do or say anything to win. that sounds familiar, too. oh, right. that's also the republican primary. trump laid out some of his policies many of which rested on his toughness, ability to make a deal and experience in construction. >> nobody would be tougher on isis than donald trump. i beat china all the time. all the time. i have so many websites. i have them all over the place. i would build a great wall, and nobody builds wall better than me, believe me.
>> seth: i'm not sure about president, but i do know a recently vacated position that could use a man with your kind of thinking in regards to walls. [ audience ohs ] okay, knight watch, first things first. the vow of celibacy is over. we protect the realm, we should be able to get our swords clean if you know what i mean. also, who is this melisandre? is she single? trump also addressed concerns about his personality. >> somebody said to me the other day, a reporter, very nice reporter, but, mr. trump, you're not a nice person. >> we don't need nice. >> that's true, but actually i am. i think i am a nice person. >> seth: yeah, why would anyone think you weren't a nice person? >> when mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. they're bringing drugs. they're bringing crime. they're rapists. >> seth: okay. that wasn't the nicest. trump then spoke to those who predicted he would never run for president because it would mean disclosing his finances claiming that trump doesn't have as much
money as he says he has. >> so a large accounting firm and my accountants have been working for months because it's big and complex, and they put together a statement, a financial statement. >> seth: only one piece of paper? when did an accountant ever put anything on one piece of paper? my cable bill is three pieces of paper. [ laughter ] >> i have assets, big accounting firm, one of the most highly respected, $9.240 billion. i'm not doing that to brag. because you know what? i don't have to brag. i don't have to. believe it or not. >> seth: no, there's a word for saying you're not bragging because you don't have to brag. it's called bragging. now come on, donald. [ applause ] i know you. you can do this without bragging.
>> i don't care. i'm really rich. >> seth: all right, you know what, never mind. never mind. never mind. what's really important here is how a trump presidency affects the republican field. to put it in jurassic terms, this is how the other gop candidates reacted to the news today. [ laughter ] trump in the race means trump getting attention. trump getting attention means trump making statements. trump making statements means all the other candidates have to respond to trump and that takes away the ability for the gop to have adult conversations about how they want to run this country. at the end of the day you have to hand it to trump. he spoke off the cuff for 52 minutes and did something few presidential candidates ever do. he made a promise i am sure he will keep. >> i promise i will never be in a bicycle race that i can tell you. >> seth: but i would pay to see that. welcome aboard, donald trump. [ cheers and applause ]

[ laughter ] david could feel his heart in his throat. he looked down. he was fully erect.

>> seth: it is -- it always seems to me that you know, every third show i go to there's a couple where one of them needs to ask the other one what the person just said. >> yes. >> seth: and they bought their tickets late enough that there are two people between them. >> right. >> seth: so there's a lot of like, "what did he say?" >> yeah, exactly. i mean, there's been a lot of whispering, but you can't let that get you down. you've got to -- the show must go on. >> seth: as a performer when you hear whispering, what do you assume is going on? >> i assume they are talking about me. [ laughter ] i assume i'm being judged. high school, man. it just never goes away. >> seth: that's true. when you hear a whisper you never think, she's wonderful, i think she's the -- >> no, not at all. like, even as like a celebrity or whatever, you walk down the street and see people whispering and you know they are whispering about you, and it's just -- i just assume they're talking [ bleep ]. [ laughter ] >> seth: do you ever have -- because sometimes i find, that especially in new york, you walk by and people willl say if they recognize you they will say your full name at full volume and think you can't hear it.
[ laughter ] like they'll say "hey, that was seth meyers." and then i'm like, "now i'm like, well, what am i supposed to do?" >> i think people just assume that we're blind or deaf or both. >> seth: yeah. >> and it's kind of sad, because, you know, we're just normal people. >> seth: you're normal because you have a dog and that's a normal person thing but your dog is not normal. >> i do. >> seth: i do, too. your dog is a bit of an internet celebrity. >> well, i made it that way. >> seth: it's your fault. it's not like -- your dog didn't set up an instagram account. >> nope, no, he didn't. >> seth: but um -- this is a pretty good one. this is you and your dog and jon stewart. that's a real -- >> i had a funny story. i was in london the other day, doing press for "ted 2" and my dog sitter was like we just ran into jon stewart on the street and i was like "oh, that's really cool" and finn was on his show a couple months ago and jon fell in love with him and he did a double take at finn and my dog sitter is like "you do know him" and jon was like "it's finn" and i wish i would have been there but it wouldn't have happened that way.

[ laughter ] [ applause ] that's really good. >> do you want to know what his diet is? >> seth: do you wanted to know what his diet is? >> sure, i'll tell you his diet. he went paleo. >> seth: he did, really? >> yeah, just like lebron james. >> seth: wow. you know what's funny? is you realize, it didn't matter if he knew who you were or not, because when you're a politician, you have to be nice to everybody. when you're running for president that's -- imagine how exhausting that would be. >> it's a drag. because it's just this one moment in the day when you take a picture with somebody, and you don't look happy, it's going to go viral. one person is like, "hey can i get a selfie" and you're like --" >> seth: right. but then the other way when that works against you is when you're a politician, you have to be happy all the time. like a picture of like rumsfeld and saddam hussein, when you're like "i'm a politician, i should be happy" and that picture follows you for rest of the life and they're like "why were you so happy in that photo with saddam hussein?"
>> why do you love hitler? >> seth: right, why do you love him? this is something -- this book has been in the works forever. you started interviewing comedians when you were 15 years old. >> that's true. >> seth: you worked for your school's radio station? >> we had a radio station, "the signal" in syosset on long island. thank you. it barely got out of parking lot. my friend used to go interview people like r.e.m. and i thought maybe i can get comedians to talk to me for our radio station. so, i would call up their publicist and say "i'm with wkwz radio", and i wouldn't say it's a high school radio station, i just pretended it was a real radio station, and i interviewed steve allen and jerry seinfeld and leno all in like 1984. >> seth: this is some really exciting photographs. this is you, a very young you, and jerry seinfeld. look at that. >> and look at how -- this is how hard he works. [ applause ] that's his shelves. that's jerry's shelves. look what he has on the shelves. nothing. look at walls, nothing. this guy is writing jokes. >> seth: this is the great
steve allen and this is really exciting -- is this true, this is your recording device? >> yeah, look at the recording device. it is literally a boom box. [ laughter ] >> seth: you just brought a boom box. >> i didn't have the equipment. i was 15 years old. >> seth: you and jay leno actually gave you feedback on some of your material. >> well that -- you know, when i got a little older i wanted to write for comedians. >> seth: yeah. >> and so one of the first people i tried to write for was jay leno and he was hosting "the tonight show" here and there, and i wrote a whole bunch of jokes and sent it to him, and one night at midnight the phone rings. my grandma answers. i lived with her, because i can't afford an apartment, and then i hear "judd, jay leno's on the phone", and i'm like "hello" and he's like "hey, i read your material, and it wasn't really that good." "i mean, it's close." "it's close, but -- but you got to keep working at it", and i'm like "this is the nicest man in the world." who calls people to say the material is terrible? >> seth: yeah. that's above and beyond in
kindness. >> would you do that? would you do that? >> seth: no. >> yeah. >> seth: and when people submit things and they say we would love for you to read that and then even if you don't like it, i'd love your feedback. i want to say, "well, if i don't like it then i don't want to give you feedback." >> my feedback is silence. >> seth: yeah. the nicest way i can tell you what you need to hear is by not saying a word. >> exactly. >> seth: you -- speaking of comedians, bill cosby. >> yes. >> seth: you were someone who sort of vocally and on social media was one of the first people in this wave of cosby news that was very critical of him. >> sure. >> seth: you received some negative pushback from that. right, some people said -- >> some people say, "why do you talk about it?" which is kind of like saying, like, "leave the rapist alone." >> seth: sure, yeah. >> right? like, aren't we supposed to say we don't like this? >> seth: yeah, i agree. >> but i feel bad. he's on the road now. he doesn't want to leave the road. he's doing gigs. >> seth: yeah he's doing a lot of stand up. >> doing standup around the country, and i think the reason he does it is so he doesn't have to go home to his wife because
then he would have to explain everything. he's always on the phone going, "camille, i'd love to come home, but i have a gig at the panera bread in west covina." [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: i like what was established tonight is you are the greatest impressionist of comedians on phones. >> exactly. >> seth: leno, you're leno on the phone. you're cosby, the best phone impressions. >> i can't do them in person, although i can do tony roberts. >> seth: tony roberts from the woody allen films. from "annie hall." >> twins max, imagine the possibilities. >> seth: that's a really good tony roberts, and for this generation that's what they have been waiting for. >> they love it. >> seth: you directed "trainwreck" with amy schumer. >> that's right. >> seth: very exciting. that's coming out soon, i can't wait. >> mid-july. >> she is such an incredible comedian. a film she wrote. and most exciting though, lebron james in your film. >> lebron james is in the movie which is great, because i get to direct him, which means as kind of a nerdy jewish guy. for a week, i get to boss around lebron james.
>> seth: yeah, well, i have a photo i want to ask you about because here, this is a famous photo of lance stepheson blowing in lebron's ear. that's kind of a big thing. >> this is me directing lebron james. >> seth: this is you directing. you went the same move. [ laughter ] the same move. >> you know, if he's not going to do it right, i've got to correct him. >> seth: i did think he learned not to lean down, because then the blow is so much farther from the ear. >> i'm trying to reach up to the ear, but he is so funny in the movie. it's weird because it's not a cameo. >> seth: yeah. >> he actually has a large part. >> seth: he really has a huge part, he plays hader's best friend. >> yeah, he's in the bruno kirby part. >> seth: fantastic. >> and he is hilarious and was a great guy and we're all rooting for him, i guess. they play tonight. >> seth: they play tonight. hopefully by the time this airs, we are going to a game seven. judd, thank you so much for being here. >> thank you. >> seth: always a pleasure to have you. >> seth: judd apatow, everybody! the book is called "sick in the head" and look for "train wreck" in theaters july 17th. we'll be back with more "late night."
